Healing House
is Coming!

Our big vision is to build Healing House at Peace Place, a retreat place where people who are out-of-balance, possibly dis-eased, and literally “tired of being sick and tired” can go to renew and heal without the use of pharmaceutical drugs.  Located in “Little Texas,” Tuskegee, Alabama, Healing House will be equipped with overnight living space, Dr. J’s Movement Center for physical activities, a dining area in which to eat nutritious food, treatment space for alternative health practitioners, and more.

The Healing House vision has been developed over the course of my entire life’s journey.  I learned about Edgar Casey in the 1980s, and i found that he helped people to get and stay well through alternative means instead of giving conventional drugs to patients to treat their illness.  In the 1930s, he treated the whole person through natural remedies; alternative methods, such as massage; and counseled them regarding every aspect of their lives.  His plan was to build a hospital, but they ran out of money.

I thought, Well, why can’t we have one of those?  I took the very long and winding road to get here, but it’s now time.  I know so many people who practice wholistic health–meaning they look at everything that goes toward making us healthy, including what we ingest, how we rest, time management, work/life balance and even a bit of astrology, crystals and colors, to name a little.  And then, i know many people who would love to be more balanced and healthy, and have no idea where to start.  We have help for all of you!

Our Clients

If you have a chronic condition or suffer from the three silent killers that are so prevalent in our community–namely: hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol–we are looking to work with you.  So many people are struggling on their own and taking medications that only address the symptoms of one condition while causing other side-effects for which they’re given more medications.  To those of you who are waking up to the reality that the medications are just too much, and you’re ready to make a healthy change, you’re the client we’re looking to serve.


If you are a wholistic/preventative/alternative health practitioner, we invite you to become part of our network.  Our clients will need some of every gift at one point or another to help them stay healthy and in balance.  We will gladly refer them to professionals in our network who know how to help them rebalance through sound, light, aroma, music, visual arts, muscle or bone manipulation, movement, healthy food-preparation, cleansing, counseling and other modalities.

The Vision

The immediate vision is to help people heal who would normally not be able to do through conventional means.  The broader vision is to make Healing House at Peace Place the model for helping people heal throughout the world by making “alternative” methods the norm and making conventional methods the emergent, temporary means of helping us heal.

Peace, Rev. Jacquetta
